Looking good! Try taking photos of the fish with manual settings and no flash. The flash washes out their colors.

Sorry the old tank didn't work out. The new tank looks good though.

I don't know a lot about discus except they poop A LOT! I have 4 goldfish who are large and they are pooping machines. 50% water change every week and I clean my filters every other week. So be prepared for maintenance with discus, because ive heard goldfish and discus are close competitors of pooping. I also believe discus devour plants. Do lots of research.

Another goldfish fan!!!!!

I love mine dearly. But boy they are messy. I've been using dirty fish water in my garden. The plants are massive and covered in blooms. So it's good in one way.

Will you be making more mermaids, like the ones you pictured in this thread? I'm still interested.

Yes I got the pics. I did send a pm but maybe it didn't go through? I really like the scales on the mermaids I your thread. If you make more will you reach out to me? Cause I'm buying one

I think we need tanks with ornaments thread! We need to forge acceptance of decorations in planted tanks.

Btw it was interesting to see how you made the mermaid. Talk about hot! You're amazing artist.
